Podcast cover

In this episode, I share my notes on one of the more impressive Denver Nuggets wins of the season, a 114-105 statement victory over the Boston Celtics. Nikola Jokic dominated every facet of the game, no one could make a wide open shot, and Isaiah Thomas got a nice tribute from the Celtics fans and from Michael Malone, who placed him in the rotation for the first time in over a week. But the real story was how much the Denver Nuggets looked like their best self on both ends of the court as they began their 4-game road trip with a win.

I go over his strengths and weaknesses as a player and discuss why sitting out a year might be the best move for him.

I also talk about Jarred Vanderbilt, the sneaky great pick of the night and a player who brings many of the best Kenneth Faried qualities without some of the Manimal's negatives.
